The New Year is an interesting time, when it comes to home decor. People are short of cash, but at this time of the year are particularly keen to make changes. They want to drop bad habits and improve their lives. Many homeowners like to make a fresh start, which means that they want to decorate.
Families are increasingly spending more time at home, which means they are once again prepared to invest time and money into decorating their houses. One of the rooms that they are spending more cash on doing up is the bedroom.
Recreating the five star hotel experience at home
Homeowners are increasingly turning their bedrooms into a luxury space, somewhere to get away from visitors and the rest of the family. A place they can truly relax and unwind, which means that they are spending more money on decorating their bedrooms.
Luxury five star hotel style bedspreads are selling particularly well. For 2017, muted colours are back in vogue, but that does not mean putting boring bedding on your beds. Richly patterned and jacquard style throws are selling particularly well. Especially those that are made from luxury fabrics, or have a high thread count.
The fact that homeowners are spending more time in their bedrooms also means that they are buying more coffee makers and mini fridges. Both items enable them to stay in their room and relax without having to get up and go into a cold kitchen to get a drink.
Feature walls are out headboards are back in
It seems that the trend to use wallpaper, or wall stickers, to create a feature wall is coming to an end. Instead, people are using elaborate headboards to add a touch of interest to the room, and turn the bed in somewhere that is comfortable to sit on to read a book. The large, padded types are selling especially well, this year.
New flooring and wall materials
Materials wise there are some interesting trends. Wood will still be a popular bedroom flooring option, but people are increasingly opting for tiles. In particular, faux red terracotta tiles, they are a nice warm colour, and look great with a few scatter rugs thrown over them.
Textured bedrooms walls are set to be back in vogue. However, we are not saying that wood chip will be back in vogue. Most people are opting to use embossed wallpaper or cork to add texture to their bedroom walls.
Bringing nature in
Green is set to be a popular colour, this year for the bedroom. It is a calming colour, which helps people to feel more relaxed and closer to nature.
You can also expect to see large houseplants appearing in people’s bedrooms. Plants provide a point of interest in a room, and having them in a bedroom is good for your health. Studies show that they help to clean contaminants from the air, as well as looking fantastic and helping to create a more relaxing ambience.
